First set was recorded at the stage, second set back some rows. Thus, the recording quality of set two is not as good as set one. Set one is extremely clear, save for the vocals being a tad muddy coming off the monitors rahter than the PA. Set two is not bad, per say, but the with set one sounding **so** nice, set two might leave you wishing that the taper had not moved at all. Randy moved because he thought that the tape might sound better if he moved back some. Alas, set two sounds like a good 1971 recording, where set one is spot on amazing for 1971. This entire recording has a very good *feel* to it. The band was very relaxed and playing extremely well together.

There were only 20 to 30 people in the audience.

Subject: This is wondeful!
No complaints about the sound from me! By the time I finally saw tha Dead Jerry was no longer playing. Missed him by about two mos.DAMN! Those 20 t0 30 people were lucky to say the least. This is NRPS at their best. Laid back, relaxed and settled into a nice groove. Wish Jerry had stayed a bit longer. Thanks so much for this show. Perfect after a long day.
